This is not the Life magazine of the 50's and 60's with a lot of photographic works. The early Life Magazine was satirical, using cartoons, illustrations and words to parody the times. Mark Twain was a frequent target of the lampooning and the drama critic was known for his dislike of most of the Broadway plays of the day.
This vintage magazine is in good condition with tight staples and clean pages. No mailing label. The only flaw is a crease down the center which I believe is from being put in a pocket or purse. Amazing condition for being over 100 years old!
